Provides Accurate Results 

RightPunch uses biometric technology for employee identification. It uses multimodal biometrics like fingerprints and facial features. There is no other way to punch in. However, biometrics are the human attributes that remain unchanged throughout life. These attributes cannot be passed on or copied. So, when an employee is identified using their biometrics, it means the result is accurate and something which employers can rely on, which leaves no room for buddy punching. 

Difficult to Forge 

RightPunch, a biometric time clock for Kronos, uses the strongest technology that cannot be forged or manipulated. In an RFID system or password-based system, employees can pass their credentials on to others. However, biometric technology is nearly impossible to forge or manipulate. Even if they try to fool the system using a fake finger,  liveness detection technology can detect it easily. At the same time, with the face recognition technology in RightPunch, an employee could easily be caught even if they try to forge a face or manipulate the system. 

Increase Accountability 

Deploying RightPunch in your office will eventually let your employees know that you leave no room for buddy punching. Your employees will understand the biometric system cannot be forged or manipulated so whatever they do with the system makes them accountable. Since there is no room for proxy attendance, your employees will become more serious and punctual about their time. Their sense of audit trail will increase, and no one will try to fool the system. Eventually, the problem of buddy punching will be eliminated from your business.
